• What is CCMR? 

     

    College, Career, and Military Readiness (CCMR) prepares students for life after graduation.  It comprises curriculum, resources, programs, and activities that will help students have the tools they need to enter college or the workforce and begin a career.  CCMR is integrated into the everyday culture of our district and is supported by state guidelines and partnerships with higher education organizations and businesses.  

    How do we prepare your child?

    CCMR is important from elementary to graduation.  Our academics are structured around giving your child a well-rounded education.  We provide several opportunities for your child to grow and develop skills needed for their future.   We accomplish this by providing our children with:

    • challenging curriculum
    • informative resources and tools
    • supportive staff
    • events and activities that jumpstart planning, such as College Night and career days
